CUSD may include any contractor’s name it desires on the bidders list, but must include, at a minimum, all contractors who have properly provided the CUSD with the required information, either during the calendar year in which the list is valid or during November or December of the prior year. The list will automatically include all contractors who submitted one or more bids to CUSD during the preceding year. A contractor may have their firm added to CUSD’s contractors list at any time by providing the required information.
